Hi guys. I decided to buy myself a little christmas present, but I wonder should I buy a Marshall amp or Peavey. Before I say more I should tell you that I have only 150 euro in my pocket so...

Ok now the Peavey amp is 40w, has 2 different clean soundings and 3 types of distortion and reverb. It costs exactly 150 euro but it is second hand.

The Marshall is brand new but is only 15w, overdrive and reverb and is offered at the same price.

So my question is: should I take the second hand amp that sounds soooo much better or the brand new. Btw the Peavey looks pretty good and was used very little and besides my guitar is Peavey. I will appriciate any oppinion. Thank you biggrin.gif

Same as what everyone else said, stay away from the Marshall MG, it's one of the worst low end amps out there. I know because I used to have one wink.gif

Coincidentally, the peavey is also one of the best low end amps out there.

Peavy - no doubt. It's bigger, louder, has a tube in preamp section - what are you waiting for - get in the shop! smile.gif

If an amp gives you a great tone you're satisfied with, go for it!
The Peavey seem like the logical choice for you, though.. Since I haven't heard much good about this particular Marshall Amp.. I guess every good family has their black sheep tongue.gif

Being a die hard Marshall user and fan I'd love to say the Marshall. However, the Peavey with the 1x12 will smoke the little 10" 15watt MG. Acctually I'm not really much of a solid state Marshall fan.

I know this wasn't one of your options but perhaps a used 1x12 Line 6 Spider could be had for about the same price as the peavey. Line 6's modeling smokes most regular solid state amps.

Real Marshall's are made in the UK. Not Korea or China! So MG's not real what so ever.

I know, those British marshalls are TONE machines, but the MG series... Bleh. my friend had one, and it sounded like mosquitos attacking!

Indeed but believe me it is better than the PC, which lags, buzzes and makes totally awful sound biggrin.gif
I just hope that the Peavey will be still in the shop tomorow tongue.gif

Hey dude,

I would probably get the peavey. I have owned both, and I think the Peavey is better value, however it does not have a tube in the preamp. Preavey's Transtube is the same thing as Marshalls FDD. They are both decent amps for bedroom practice (who's going to spend $3000 on a tube amp, that they can't always crank?....ok probably me, just for those times when i can lol).

But I like the sound of a 12" speaker rather than a 10" or 8". Try the amps for yourself, and ask if you can go into a fairly small room and try them (like your bedroom). An amp will sound different in a huge warehouse like a guitar shop.

When buying amp, always get them to throw in something extra like a set of strings.... stick it to the man!
